Most of the names and terms in this sub made me think of Australia, and not frosted tundra, but the concept is sound. I could see the dragon smashing a few houses, roasting some livestock in a pen and telling the mayor about the great new deal he had just made with a dragon, a tenth of his livestock and gold for the endless joy and protection of a dragon landlord.

"Doctor, doctor, we've found some bones over here!"

"Looks like the bones of a Plot, but there isnt much to go on. Some of these dont do too well when not given enough time or detail."

"Can it be repaired, or fixed?"

"Of course, but it will take some time and some elbow grease, as well as possibly some lucibration, the midnight oil, you know."

"What can we do?"

"Well, lets start at the begining, this seems very much like an uncommon lone spy mission, but thats not very good for a PC party, so the Queen could instead of hiring an untrustwortrhy thief could instead use a band of proven, if not yet famous adventurers instead, allowing them to use a variety of their own skills instead of skulking in the shadows and hiding and stealing things."

"But what about the other thieves who are opposing the heros?"

"Back in olden times, like now, there was an equivalent to a Intelligence service, these Queens men would be the antagonists. Have you ever read any of the Tom Clancy novels? Its not 100% cloak and dagger, there are other elements that can be used to flesh out this plot."

"Like a traitor in the Queens men, or a rogue agent with a prismatic spear?"

"Maybe not that much Tom Clancy, but you get the idea."

It seems I have been extremely remiss in not offering comment or vote for this submission. I intent to fix both of these errors. This item is awesome, both in it's backstory and the people who existed early in the box's history and in it's faux-gothic death waltz feel. Go to Comment

Certainly an interesting angle, the new primitives. I like the concept.

Wow. I did not expect this much feedback, let alone a five-flamer! I really like this dark world that seems to be growing from this one post, I generally like the darker games anyhow, Ravenloft, Call of Cthulhu, and the entire World of Darkness milieu. Now for my two cents.

This elder god of evil is perhaps not the malevolent evil we think he is, but is a more apathetic deity, more interested in the trials and sufferings of the common populace. The world that is exists as his experiment in cruelty and compassion, as the two are opposites and cannot exist without the other. Perhaps the dragons are his fallen angels, originally created to serve him, but failing in that they became interested in material things, and their own granduer rather than furthering the god's plans.

As for what he does with them, perhaps they are brought to heel, and forced to sit at their master's feet as they were originally created to do, but by whatever means they previously escaped and slipped their leashes, so to speak.

Scrasamax's comment on 2004-12-03 11:41 PM
I am stuck, however, on the price of the spear. Perhaps to be more precise, the cost of using the spear. The first thing that came to mind was that the user most certainly had to have the will to use the weapon. Second, there would be a sacrifice. For this sacrifice, it would have to be of great value and importance, like offering a loved one as blood sacrifice to the Dark God, or perhaps even offerings ones own life upon completion of the task. There could even be a twist that the price for each user is different. I really like the suicide/sacrifice angle, but it leaves a gap in the creation of the dynasties when using the item ensures that its user is not around afterwards to breed. Any input? Go to Comment

The Blackguard, the undying servants of the Dark Gods, akin to the Nazgul, and to Spawn in that their existance is continued for the sole purpose of servitude. This could be a good into into a cult of ancestor worship, praying to the spirits of the dead for help and guidance, these fallen kings and heros could be the Saints and scourges of a culture who worship the dead.

Ruha Goo

Scrasamax's comment on 2004-11-30 04:21 PM
I would bet it would smell quite foul also. It would likely be hard to hide the fact that a said character uses the ruha goo. In more rare cases, the goo might attract ruha slugs, if there is one in the area. Just and idea.

A solid item.

It was partially inspired by the Red Spot on Jupiter, and also from watching the damaged caused by the series of hurricanes that hit Florida this year. Go to Comment

Owning no fewer than three cats myself, I musr admit I do believe that cats do have a rather sinister origin, perhaps having a home somewhere in Hell. But, I also know that my kitties become quite irate when people are upset, and not paying the proper attention to them.

Cats were once worshiped as gods, all cats remember this. Go to Comment

I think this would work quite well as a red herring, an encounter that doesnt have any major, or even minor ramifications other than being totally weird. Go to Comment
